Gazette Premium Content Throw a Super Bowl Party that fits the occasion

By Leslie Massey Updated: February 2, 2014 at 1:27 pm

Every year, football fans (and some non-fans) gather around for an epic party celebrating the Super Bowl, America's biggest annual sporting event. A Super Bowl party is not like any other party because it combines an exhilarating sporting event with the social atmosphere of family and friends.

While most Super Bowl parties have similarities - the beer, the food, the elaborate commercials, the beer - you can make your blowout one they'll keep talking about long after.

Along with the standard chili, wings, and chips and dip, add some flair to your fare by letting your guests munch away on delectable orange and blue treats from Patsy's Candies. They include candy, lollipops, giant jawbreakers, salt water taffy and jellybeans. And don't forget the orange and blue popcorn!

You still need some hot sustenance, though. Perfect for game time chili and supporting the Broncos is this portable Crock-Pot Cook 'N Carry. It's just right for tailgating and get-togethers at anytime. A 6-quart crock pot can be found at Wal-Mart for $39.92.

Have fun with snacks while displaying your Bronco pride. This Bronco snack helmet has a large container inside the helmet for chips. A dip-size double compartment hides in the facemask. $49.99, Bed Bath and Beyond.

Big enough to display sandwiches, cookies or any other game day treat, the perfect Broncos serving platter for feeding guests on game day is available for $24 at Bed Bath and Beyond.

At 14 inches by 29.5 inches, the blow-up football beverage holder is big enough to hold plenty of beer and when filled with ice it will keep your drinks cool until the fourth quarter. $14.99, Party City.

Go all out with team pride for game day. Along with your favorite jersey or T-shirt, add some furry orange leg warmers ($16.99) and an orange or blue cowboy hat ($5.99). Some temporary Bronco tattoos ($3.99) and nail decals ($1.99) are fun and easy for kids and adults. All of these items are available at Party City.

And rather than just festooning with the ordinary Broncos tablecloth and streamers, OYOs allow Broncos fans to display minifigures of actual Broncos players positioned on a toy field. Much like Legos, these toy figures come in full Broncos uniform and feature the names and likeness of fan favorites. After the game, OYOs and Field Sets can serve their original purpose: collectible figures for kids to play with. Available at Dick's Sporting Goods and the Colorado Rockies Dugout Store.
